I used to believe that when the term, "Guerillas" was used, I actually thought it meant "Gorillas" as in the animal.
When I was little, looking at National Geographic magazines, I believed that if you touched the mouth of any of the creatures they could bite you. To this day I am still very careful when turning pages in one.
I used to believe that all animals would talk to each other when people weren't looking. And how do we know they don't?
I grew up near the ocean, and when we'd go to the beach I'd catch sand crabs and let them go. My dad told me that if one pinched me with it's claw it wouldn't let go until it thundered. I believed this for years.
I used to think God made frogs out of wet playdough.
I used to believe the torn up tires from semi's on the side of the road were alligators because of all the tread from the tires and the way the tires were torn up, it looked scary.
I used to believe that sometimes animals would be people who had magically transformed themselves so that they could spy on other people, and they would think like people but just couldn't talk. I still get nervous whenever my dogs stare at me while I'm changing - what if it's really a person???
When I was little, I thought that sheep and goats were the same animal. Just that sheep were all female and goats were all male.
A friend told me that Killer Whales / Orcas could tell if you were a bad person or not.
If you were bad then they would eat you. I totally believed it.
me and sister used to think milk was cow urine. one day my grandpa was milking a cow (he lives on a farm) and we smacked his hand and said, " Granpa! How would you like it if someone touched you there!"
I once conviced my friend that there were made whales that lived in volcanoes and birds would come and take them out of the lava and they would get cold and blow up like a balloon and thats how blimps are made. She was 13.
My Nan told me when I was younger that her friend's husband looked after the pigs at our local zoo and that one day after work he didn't come home - they found him the next morning half-eaten, by the pigs! I believed this until I started university and called my Nan in front of my friends who disbelieved me...it wasn't true! All those years of being scared of pigs wasted...
I used to believe squirrels were called 'pumbas'.
Like the warthog from The Lion King.
when i was little i thought pigs ate only tomatoes because bacon and ham was red when cooked.
When I was 3 or 4 I thought that Dinosaurs just desided to leave and go to mars or something.. (hard to remember after so long) then when I was 6 I learned about the meteor 0= lol
When I was small I was told that sausages came from pigs and I thought there was a little hole in their sides where the sausages came out. I even drew it for my teacher for homework
I used to think that there was a chipmunk in my backyard hosting some kind of chipmunk game show. My friend and I used to run around in the hopes that we would be caught on camera and therefore become famous in the rodent world.
When I was a kid I truly used to believe that all cows that were brown were female and the black and white ones were male (bulls). I thought it was great that they and others so easily could see which was which. But I didn't really know what to think about the brown and white ones....
It took a few years before I understood that the colors had nothing to do with their gender.
I used to think that sharks were dolphins who were really mean on steroids and ridiculous stuff like that.
A story told to me by my mom: When I was younger we were in the car and it was raining out. We drove by a field of cows and horses and I asked my mom how the horses and cows took showers? She jokingly told me that the farmer would come out and give them a bar of soap! I apparently believed her, and told my teacher how cows and horses took showers the next day at school!
